The famous Union Square Christmas Cookie Tour began in 1985. It started out as a fall house tour where residents greeted scores of visitors from all over the Washington-Baltimore region. As competition among house tours grew the association moved its tour closer to Christmastime and the tour now consistently welcomes nearly 500 participants every year. It is our primary fundraiser and over the years the Cookie Tour has raised thousands of dollars for the Union Square community. Proceeds from the event support the Association’s upkeep of the Union Square Park, and a variety of activities including our Bloom Your Block campaign, the Lots of Art Initiative, and the Sunday Sounds in the Park music series.
The 2018 Cookie Tour will take place on Sunday, December 9th from 12 noon – 4 p.m.
